Bridge Point Recognised as Cisco Identity Services Engine Authorised Technology Provider Partner in Australia
The Cisco ISE platform is a comprehensive, next-generation, contextually-based access control solution that offers exceptional visibility and control to ensure a highly secure enterprise and efficiently enforce security policy across an entire distributed network. The Cisco ISE offers authenticated network access, profiling, posture and guest management along with monitoring, reporting and troubleshooting capabilities on a single physical or virtual appliance. The Cisco ISE enables scalable and flexible enforcement mechanisms leveraging existing identity-aware network infrastructure, and ships on a wide range of physical appliances with different performance settings to address multiple deployment requirements.
“The ‘BYOD challenge’ has been driving customer demand for ISE. More and more employees want to bring their own devices to work and connect to the network,” said Rob Siganto, Managing Director of Bridge Point Communications.
“Our customers will benefit from Cisco ISE due to better security resulting from improved visibility and control over all user activity and devices. They will also be able to maximise efficiency and increase IT staff productivity by automating labour-intensive tasks and simplifying service delivery.”
The Cisco ATP program is part of the go-to-market strategy for Cisco ISE solutions. The program helps define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support ISE solutions.
